What sparked your passion for family planning?

I had early exposure to Family planning and maternal health services during my nurse training attachment at a rural health centre in Manicaland province of Zimbabwe. I had studied the family planning subject theory at Nursing school before the rural attachment and understood the economic and health benefits of family planning services to families particularly women and was able to offer health education at Maternal and Child Health unit. I continued to develop knowledge and skills at ZNFPC.

Give one or two examples of how you display leadership in your family planning work.:

As Head of PSZ/MSI Clinics in charge of a network of 10 clinics & 45 staff, I introduced Clinic improvement Plans with clear deliverables that dramatically changed the department doubling CYPs, Long Acting Reversible Contraception & other key deliverables. I introduced In-Reach FP service provision at Universities & Churches to increase FP uptake & access. I am a Committee Member of Zim-SADC PF on SRH advocating access to FP. The Best practices adopted by Marie Stopes.
